Yesterday i started the new workout you gave me and I can already tell you that the psichological effects are tremendous, having reorganised my workout has given me a new found motivation and that can only be good.
I'm looking forward to the other benefits but I'm patient, i know it wont be overnight.
I do have a query about the stiff legged deadlift., I'm very stiff on ym lower back and can never reach the floor with nor without weights,,,,doesnt matter what i try since i was a child I was never able to touch the floor with my hands unless i bend my kneees...
I grew used to it and I always bend my knees for everything. The stif leg is the first time I do an exercise which marks my problem so conspicuosly. I carried 25 kgs yesterday (4 x 6) and it wasnt difficult to be honest, only that i couldnt reach the floor of course. I was nervous that 25kgs was too much but today I have no pain whatsoever which suggests that i didnt injure myself and the weight is probably ok.
You told me on another forum no to worry soo much if I cant reach the floor with the stiff leg deadlift, but I still wanna adress the issue of flexibility... what should i do? ... how do i approach this problem?..should I do more streches?...what kind of stretches?...should i put more weight ( I felt that the weight was actually helping me flex a bit more)...perhaps more reps?..or maybe more back exercises?.... any suggestion in particular anyone?
